Does eric have a recommendation cable wise?

Do the speakers have spikes on bottom? 
Looking for CD players with digital inputs.
$1,000 - $1500 range basically. But, the best alternative may be a Benchmark DAC HDR and keep my current Elite universal player (use analog outs for sacd/dvd-a). Then find a nicely priced pair of tube monoblocks

"Just ordered the Lore's, actually a buddy bought them for me"If he was a real buddy he would have bought the NAD BEE 565 
British sound???
If I were to attempt to recreate the classic BBC british sound thru my EQ (just for fun), what settings? 
Zu Omen or Tekton Lore
Mlg, a full review is in order once you receive them. Also, I would be interested in the sonic difference between the Lore's with your current cables and with the new cables. I think the gloss white will look great. I would not worry about resale ... 
1950's and Early 60's recorded solo piano recordin
Thanks, I have a couple of TM releases I really like, I will check those out. I really like the Mingus tracks on the his piano LP as well. Very expressive. I have heard many fine recordings from later periods, but it seems that, especially eightie...

Explain Amp classes & how effects sound?

ZU OMEN speakers 12ohms??
So if I wanted to go the tube route, I could get a pair of Omens and drive them easily with a small 20 watt or so tube integrated without strain? My elite receiver has 110 watts per channel. 
Apple to download 24 bit in iTunes?
You do not have to have a top notch system to hear an improvement with higher rez audio. In my low-to midfi system, my SACDs have a huge advantage when compared to the general CD release. Maybe it is the lack of compression or the way they were ma... 
The OFFICAL Apple TV thread
I just purchased an ATV2 and hooked it up to my system. I fed the audio (TOSlink) to my 8 year old Pioneer Elite A/V receiver and the streaming sound of Apple Lossless files is as good as playing the CD's through my Elite 45A universal player (ana...
